Re: My son took the oath today...
Congrats to you and your son.
I tried to enlist in 2009. 18, fresh out of HS, went through the whole processing at MEPS. Unfortunately for me, I was DQ'd for having two perforated eardrums. Spent the next 3 1/2 years out of school, depressed, having to go through 4 surgeries/recruiters, trying to get a waiver approved by BUMED. Last January I finally heard back from them, they rejected me outright. I can never be a Marine...BUT, the Army was nice enough to approve my waiver and I'm starting the ROTC program this Fall because THE HELL with enlisting now.
Choo got it, dude.
